Margaret E. Mulac

American Author

"Solitude is important to man. It is necessary to his achievement of peace and contentment. It is a well into which he dips for refreshment for his soul. It is his laboratory in which he distills the pure essence of worth from the raw materials of his experiences. It is his refuge when the very foundations of his life are being shaken by disastrous events."

"Time is a man's most precious possession - his most precious commodity. To take a man's time, is to take a portion of his life. To give a man some of your time, is to give him a portion of yours."
